    Arsenal1508 Mods are unethical! Ozil, come assist me please!

    So, fvuck him for ruining his performances. Goalkeepers need to ignore coaches at times. Clear Leno is a follower and not a leader.

    It was Sokratis' mistake not Leno's. He is told to pass from the back so you can't really blame him for that.

    Btw, shouldn't Watford's first goal have been disallowed as I'm sure one of their players was inside the penalty before Leno kicked the ball?

    So has Sokratis. Why pas to Sokratis if he hasn't got time to do anything but hoof it, which was the claim I was responding to.

    Yeah if there's a pattern to the options Leno chooses I can't see it atleast. But tbf to Leno none of the players are good enough to play out from the back you know why? Because there isn't a proper system applied to the whole thing. There's no variation. It's just the two CBs on either side and the full backs on the touchline. Watch how City switch up there positions from goalkicks. It's almost never the same.

    So putting 100% blame on Sokratis and 0% on Leno doesn't make much sense to me....

    I'm not blaming Sokratis 100%. If anything this whole thing could have been avoided if Emery could either coach the damn team to be actually good at playing out from the back OR give clear instructions to not risk it if you're not sure about it. Judging by how we messed up twice before the goal and still stuck to it tells me it's a clear instruction to not worry too much about mistakes because it's a percentage game.

    Remember the very first game of Emery against City at the Emirates? When Cech passed the ball right along the goal line out for a corner? Have we really improved from that, 16 months later?

    This GK doesn't fill me with confidence. He might be a good shot stopper but he still doesn't command his box well enough. He should be ordering the CB's around and getting us set from the back. The Sokratis error wasn't his fault but the box is his kingdom. We should have set up higher up the pitch. Even Cech used to throw it out to the wings to try and play from the back. Why not use his feet to play to a pushed up full back? He gets deserved praise atm, but he doesn't have that aura of a top class GK. He's not a problem atm, but we shouldn't assume GK is sorted for the next few years with him as number 1.

    Been seeing this for a a long long time, too. This is not how you do playing out from the back, it's a horrible. When you try to pass it out from the back and the only team moving is the opposition something's very wrong - like before the second Watford goal.

    Don't understand how we are meant to play it out from the back but when he gets the ball in play and there is a chance for a quick counter he is slow to release it. Right now thats the only playing from the back I wanna see

    Exactly, they're doing it because that's what they've been told to do. Leno has been good at all the things a GK should be required to do. Playing tiki taka with the CBs isn't one of them.

    He's a decent keeper but thats a stretch, he is poor in the air and has a habit of parrying into the danger areas

    When was the last time a Arsenal keeper actually saved a in-game penalty?

    He dumped Sokratis in a bad situation

    Nobody is asking him to play tiki taka. The request is for him to not dump his CBs in ****ty situations. If people say Sokratis should have hoofed that ball, then it was clearly easier for Leno to hoof it, he wasn't under pressure.

    Can't believe some of the stuff being said about Leno, he looks by far the best GK we have had for years and a bargain at the price we paid.

    Definitely not a position we need to be worrying about.

    As for the cock up yesterday, he has clearly been told to play from the back, exactly like Cech was and we have looked **** at it since this fad became a thing.

    He's been told to pass to either CB by the looks of things, his options are pretty limited. Sokratis didnt 'need' to hoof it he just cant pass that well, he could have went to Xhaka, he just isnt comfortable with the ball at his feet, I wouldnt even say he was under that much pressure.

    Leno's a problem now? **** off with this bullshit. Look at what's infront of him - the guy has an average midfielder playing at RB, a LWB trying to play as a LB and the Chuckle Brothers at CB. We could sign Oblak and we'd be conceding ridiculous goals!

    Leno needs to tell his manager to **** off with his instructions. He has a brain himself. Even Cech used to go long to Kolasinac when they were stuck under pressure.

    So you think Emery told Sokratis that even if there's a 50/50 chance of threading it through to a player from your 6 yard line, go for it? This makes zero sense. Of course he didn't tell him to attempt a risky pass, or even to make a **** pass when the pass was on. You think he'd have been asked to defend his actions had he hoofed that ball forward with no clear option on? Come on.
